His career really started in 1995, when he produced his first movie “Kicking and Screaming” with Josh Hamilton, Eric Stoltz, and Samuel Gould.

In the 90’s, Blum worked with Bob and Harvey Weinstein and later for Warner Bros as a producer, before he went on to be a producing director at Ethan Hawke’s Malaparte Theater Company.

In 2007, Blum produced the horror movie “Paranormal Activity” with Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat, and Mark Fredrichs. It cost only $15,000 but generated nearly $200 million at the box office, the most successful movie Blum has produced and which significantly increased his net worth. His company Blumhouse Productions was established in 2000 and specialised in making micro-budget films, and “Paranormal Activity” was one of them. In 2008, Blum was a co-executive producer of Oscar-winning drama “The Reader” starring Kate Winslet, Ralph Fiennes, and Bruno Ganz.

After the success of “Paranormal Activity” and “The Reader”, Blum became busier, and he produced more than 50 films during this decade. “Insidious” (2010) with Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, and Ty Simpkins is one of them, generating more than $50 million with a budget of only $1.5 million.

The next two years were the busiest in Blum’s career, as he worked on “The Purge” (2013) starring Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, and Max Burkholder, “Oculus” (2013), “Insidious: Chapter 2” (2013), Oscar-winning drama “Whiplash” (2014) with Miles Teller, J.K. Simmons, and Melissa Benoist, “13 Sins” (2014), “Creep” (2014), and “The Normal Heart” (2014). Blum also filmed “The Purge: Anarchy” (2014), “Stretch” (2014) with Patrick Wilson, “The Lazarus Effect” (2015), “Insidious: Chapter 3” (2015), “The Gift” (2015) starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall, and Joel Edgerton, and “The Visit” (2015), all of which increased his net worth by a large margin.
